A Roaring in the Wind Author:Robert Lewis Taylor The year is 1857. Ross Nickerson, a young man with—as the deans of Harvard College phrase it—"an undue bent toward mischief... leaves school and his comfortable New England home in search of broader fields for his adventurous nature in the mountains of Montana. Drinking, gambling, dueling, killing, and breathless adventure are what he finds. Min... more »ers, mountain men, thieves, Indians, saloon girls, gamblers. quack doctors and stern vigilantes are the people he encounters. And one young, beautiful, untamed daughter of the West.
The ingredients that made Jaimie McPheeters a worldwide success—sheer entertainment carved out of authentic history, with a rollicking humor reminiscent of Mark Twain and Bret Harte—make A ROARING IN THE WIND a rich and racy tale for all who love an exciting story, nostalgia and rip-roaring drama.« less
